I do, and the mountain bike. I thought you meant while the LJ was down. The LJ is my only vehicle, nissan is a backup.

Duplicolor spray bedliner. Nice tough texture but not too tough

Nice! Love the tiki man switch. How did you end up attaching it? Is the caulk the only thing that holds the panel in?

I epoxied it in place and then caulked everything so it should be fairly sturdy. I should have taken pictures from the back side but I epoxied the top and bottom lips and then caulked all the nooks and crannies

the anti-rock is probably gonna prompt me to finally get rid of the bumper i have for something much lighter and a little more poison spider-ish

Great score. One of my favorite things I have ever installed. Post a side pic of your current bumper. The AR works with just about every bumper there is out there. But you can always upgrade to spider stuff....

The trip went well minus a couple of hiccups. A major one being smashed by a freak hail storm yesterday. It came out of no where and only lasted about 15 min but did some serious damage



Here I am shooting skeet when the weather developed on the horizon

Is there room in this thread for a non bayou dweller ?

I had no idea that you two were twins . Kind of ironic that yall ended up with similar rigs . Nice build so far and I am glad I wasnt in West by God Texas this afternoon !

There's always room in here! Welcome to my build, where it's always a party and occasionally I wrench on my jeep.

Yeah it's pretty bizarre the way we ended up with similar rigs. I had my orange CJ7 for sale and I had a lot if calls on it within an hour of posting it. After it was pending sale a guy on the local board was really interested in it but I told him it was pretty gone but it got my gears ticking because he offered me a TJ as a trade. I instantly sent him a picture of the green CJ5 because I knew now I wouldn't have a streetable jeep. Well him being a die hard CJ enthusiast, said he wanted it and that was pretty much it. I just had no idea his TJ would be the twin of my brothers TJ haha.

Rip Orange and big green
